    If I have to be at work............

    Than I am going to make the best of it when if/when I can!

    Last November the office supply where I order all our supplies
    from had a VERY NICE sale. Buy $90 worth of k-cup coffee, and
    get a Keurig Brewer FREE. A deal I couldn't pass up no matter
    how hard I tried.

    So I ordered the coffee, and for about a week I left it in the box.
    Casually mentioned this deal to my hubs. He told me we already
    had a Keurig and didn't need another one, I reminded him that we
    was on #6 in 2 years so yes we ALWAYS need a new brewer.

    After he told me this I decided to set up my "own" coffee station
    in my office. But in doing this I found that 98% of the time I always
    forget to put my half & half in the refrigerator which is on the OTHER
    side of the warehouse that meant that I was wasting probably about
    $10-15 a WEEK on creamers and half & half by not getting it put away
    properly.

    So I went looking for a mini fridge to put in my office. Low and behold
    I ended up at Home Depot online and they had the PERFECT fridge for
    me.

    This is a 6 pack can sized ac/dc refrigerator. Just the right size to put
    my creamer in.

    On that note I think it is time for an afternoon cup of java.

    I never saw that before. So cute I would have brought one just to keep my Coca Cola in it. It fit perfectly in your mini coffee shop. Your office is probably a nice hang out for when people are on a coffee break.

    That little fridge is so cute! When I was working it would have been so great to have a Keurig at my desk or at least in the work area. But then I needed to get up and walk from time to time because I lived on the computer and telephone all day.

    That is darling! I need one for my sewing room. Oh my Keurig is about 4 years old and still working perfectly. We use it many times a day. I bought it at Sam's Club as a special buy. The manger told me it was made just for Sam's Club and quality made so no complaints from customers so Sam's would stock it as a basic item. If you see a special buy at Sam's it is usually the best quality. They are testing the product for stocking.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    I've never had to purchase a coffee maker. I tend to wait till Gevalia has a deal you can't pass up for a free one with an order. I'm on my last coffee maker from them, got it 3 years ago and finally opened it up. I cancelled my automatic orders as they have discontinued so many of the flavors, it just wasn't worth it anymore. I have enough coffee to last me a year anyway. I add one scoop of the flavored coffee to 2 scoops of regular coffee for each pot. I run thru a pot every other day as its just me here now. I cut myself off after 2 cups a day as I get the jitters too bad and afraid I'll cut the fabric wrong.

    I take my own coffee to the office. Not there very long and the Keurig is always broke. I've been at that office for 2 years and they have had 4. They're getting another one this weekend. I will just continue to bring my own. It is a cute fridge though.

    Up until last October I was only working 2 days a week, with
    the rare times I was needed more than that.

    When on the short schedule I would just go to either McDonald's
    or 7-Eleven for coffee.


    But with me working 40 hour weeks I don't want to stop everyday
    for coffee now. This just works better for me now.

    WHEN I go back to days a week (and I KNOW that I will at some point)
    the Keurig will be going home with me along with my fridge.

    At work we all (except the boss who doesn't drink coffee) tend to
    drink to much coffee to warrant the cost of the little creamers that don't
    need to be refrigerated. Not unless I could find a source to buy them in
    quantity. Which I have not looked into at this point.

    I must have one of those in my quilting Studio. I am forever letting a can of soda get warm. This would be perfect. I love it, and it takes so little room. Thank you so much for the post
